i was the victim of a DMW one time. this guy cam onto an xball field with a talon and needless to say everyone was puzzled. but apparently he had done this before because a couple of the guys were saying stuff like don't let the talon fool you he knows what he's doing. anyways i break up to the fifty and i'm covering the left side because the rest of my team went right (the plan works as long as i stay in). all of the sudden i feel a shot in my back, i check for paint and i'm hit so i call out. i turn around to see who got me and it was the guy with the talon. he went on to take out two more players before he got hit. i was mystified how my team let him just waltz up.

i left the field to refill everything and decided to watch him play another game. he did the same exact thing again! the way he worked it was he didn't really try to pretend he was out, he somehow figured out how to treewalk an xball field which i didn't even think you could do the way it was laid out. i found out later that the guy was an ex professional but i never got his name.

What you posted is very good example of what I mean about Not Paying Attention.

I have been VERY successful when using this trick. I call it a trick, because its really not a tactic. Its something I use if and when I see no other tactical way to do anything... or when Im bored. Giant paint throwing matches in a scenario make for a good oppurtunity. I have walked up, handed an opponent my main gun, then drawn my pistol to destroy his buddies. Ive also opened up whole flanks of the field for my team with a well done DMW. I have yet have it fall through... but it doesnt make you very popular. I try to use it sparingly for that reason.

Im not a big fan of this particular tactic. It can be done without technically cheating, but I feel that it's borderline most of the time.
I prefer to call the Non-Cheating version the "Casual Walk"...no indications to suggest that you are actually out ...just not acting in a threatening manner, like you're to busy thinking deep thoughts to bother with the game.
My biggest objection is that in fields where this tactic is common, I see alot of innocent dead people get lit up, because no-one trusts anyone to stay out of the action. The old "shoot first, ask questions later" mentality...

I did something similar before, but I never pretended to be out. I had my gun in both hands aiming it as i went but not firing and walked around the edge of the field and pluked the flag right off their bas as one of thier guys was watching me from about 5 feet away. Hetried to engage me afterwards and i ducked behind the teepee (thier base) and engaged in a close range shoot out and won. I then shot three more guys on the back. Before my team noticed a guy on thier side standing straight up and cranking off shots on from the enemy lines (ME), and my team decided to open fire on me and lit me up good. O well, i thought it was fun and since thier flag was pulled they couldnt recycle. It wasnt a Dead Man's Walk, It was more a Casual Man's Stroll. My gun was facing them, it was thier stupidity.

DMW is a universal sign for "eliminated player - no freeballing" We use this as a safety means and safety is rule number one.

So if you want to use this then you shall reap what you sow. I would freeball you the rest of the day to make sure you were dead.

I just realized a player did try to do a DMW in a Urban Game I attended earlier this year and as I can recall a player from the OpFor was calmly walking towards me and four other players were in a area we were defending, which was a roadway that lead to our CP.

At first it looked like he had lost his sense of direction, since his CP was opposite from us and that he was holding his Marker in the ready position (gun pointed downwards) then someone from across my position, yelled out "Player...are you OUT, answer the question quickly or you will be Fired Upon!", the Lone Gunman stopped on his tracks and was standing in the middle of the Roadway and all of us had a Clear Shot of him....the player didnt say anything, he calmly reached into his pocket and pulled out his BBD, placed it on his Barrel, raised his Marker above his head, did an About Face and started walking towards his CP.

I typically play where, if your out, your gun is up and from time to time you call out "Dead Man Walking", if you don't do that, your a target. I have had someone DMW on me, he was following a group of real dead men but did not perform the necessary procedure of a dead man. Fortunately I realized he was still in play before he got too close, I gave him several rounds in the chest and his last shot just happened to give me a yellow eye. Fortunately, for the style of that particular game, he was dead and I was 1 head or body shot away from dead. He and I were the last two in the game.

A bunch of guys and myself unfortunately became the multi-colored and killed again dead men. The group of us were standing together at the edge of the field out in the open discussing the game and watching the last players get overrun. Apparently, one of the attackers must have thought all of us with our guns degassed, standing out in the open, talking to each other were a threat and opened fire on us. We all took a good number of rounds in the chest and back before he stopped shooting. Not that big of a deal, it was partially our fault for being lit up.

I just want to clear something up, because your second paragraph is confusing me.

Were you and your friends standing in Front of the Tape Line or Behind the Tape Line, because if you and your friends were standing in front of the Tape Line, then you and your friends became Fair Game, thus the reason why that player lit you guys up.

Now, if you and your friends were behind the Tape Line, then the player had no business shooting at you.

What tape line????? Our little field just happens to be a very large backyard. We were all standing at the very edge of the town and on the main trail. I'll have to get a photo of the entire town but until then this is a bit of the town.

From this photo we where about 75' to the right and in the middle:

From about the same standing position and looking down the field (to the left):

(that tape line was a barrier that an engineer setup during a scenario).

All of us being re-killed a couple of times was not a big deal, basically it was, we are out!, we are out!, we we already dead, how many time were we shot and where, nice shooting but the real enemy is still out there, and a friendly "I'm going to hunt you down next game". If it had been a group of some other peole thing may have been a little different.

When were out playing, it is known and told to all players to expect being shot 3-5 times at very close range per elimination and even more if they don't call out, put their gun up, and get out of there (alot of us have guns so loud we can only hear the gun and a little behind us). I've been shot in the back of the neck 3 times at less than 15' by friendly fire. Sure it hurts a little but you go back, respawn, and rejoin the battle. Between the games you discuss the game, show off you bruises and welts, and congradulate your shooter (even if it was a friendly). A few people play one shot for an elimination and 5 is over shooting but for us 3-5 is normal, more is an accident, dead men being shot, its all part of the game. Camera people with their bright clothing and regular calling of themselfes coming through, are garenteed to be lit up somehow even though no one is shooting at them. Some people call the way we play extreme but if you can't tank it, don't come. Thats why when these kinds of things happen, it no big deal, we all have come to accept it as just another game.

Thats the reason why I mentioned about the Tape Line, because you stated a player assumed you and your friends were part of an On Going Game, hence the reason why he fired and you never said the field was a large backyard.

this one guy tried something close to thiat. he was behind a bunker and he stuck his head up so i started spraying down the bunker. he stuck his hand up but stayed behind the bunker. I kept yelling "MOVE, GET OUT OF THERE!!" but he wouldnt so i just gave up and started shooting at somebody else when he started shooting at me. He missed his first couple of shots then i took cover. i stuck my head out the other side of the bunker and goggled him :dodgy: . I kept my eye on him while he was walking off the field just in case he tried some othere tricky tactic.

i dont find this tactic cheating but i do find it cheap. It is a low tactic so that you get to wander around freely and get into a good position and then decide to shot? at the field i play at they wouldnt care if it was fun or cheating you would get kicked from it for a while. personally if someone did that to me i would shoot them even if i was out.

If you pay for your own paintball equipment put this in your sig.
If your a Christian paintballer put this in your sig.

Well, if you Gogged him he wouldnt be able to pull the DMW, but if he did do a DMW while walking towards the Staging Area...then, he would be cheating.
